Eliminating White Noise in Streamlabs

Jan 23, 2024

When it comes to live streaming, crisp and clear audio is just as important as the quality of your video. White noise during your livestream can not only distract your viewers but also severely impact their overall experience. Streamlabs is a popular tool that offers a range of powerful features to create broadcast experiences, often used by gamers and other online influencers. If you're experiencing white noise issues on your Streamlabs livestream, fear not. By follow these simple steps, you can troubleshoot and eliminate the problem to ensure a smooth and pleasant audio experience for your audience.

  1. Check your audio devices: First and foremost, make sure you have selected the correct audio devices for your microphone and speakers. Go to Streamlabs settings and navigate to the 'Audio' tab. Choose the appropriate device for 'Mic/Auxiliary Device'. It's also essential to test your audio input devices before streaming to avoid any surprises.

  2. Adjust audio thresholds: Under the 'Audio' tab in Streamlabs settings, you can also alter the audio thresholds by adjusting the 'Microphone Noise Gate' and 'Microphone Noise Suppression' settings. Experiment with the values to find an optimal setting that eliminates white noise without affecting your voice volume.

  3. Use hardware noise reduction: If your microphone or headset has built-in noise reduction features, make sure to enable them. This may significantly decrease the white noise in your stream.

  4. Upgrade your microphone: If none of the above solutions works, it might be worth considering investing in a higher-quality microphone with built-in noise reduction technologies.

  5. Post-processing software: If you're not able to fix the white noise during the live stream, you can still improve the audio quality for the recorded video by using post-processing software such as Audacity or Adobe Audition to remove any residual noise.

By incorporating these methods into your streaming setup, you can effectively combat white noise and provide a more enjoyable experience for your viewers. Always ensure that you troubleshoot and test your audio settings prior to starting your live stream, so you don't have to deal with these issues in real-time and can focus on delivering a high-quality experience for your viewers.
